Vee is sure to live up to the creed: Mixing sexiness, romance, and equality to create true love.
A single parent, disabled veteran, and a child of veterans, V. Vee has lived all over the US nation, and even Cuba,but V's favorite place is with "Papi" who is the man who helped V.

Vee loves to hear from readers and is completely open to hearing about the single brother you have who may be bisexual, or gay, or the family member who is trans, or a veteran, or how you want to be an author someday. Just be sure to label the email appropriately, it's embarrassing to offer writing advice to potential husbands.
Really. It is.
Everyone knew my brother.
Everyone knew my sister-in law.
And now? They were all going to know me.
You may have heard of my brother: Andrew McCarthy? The Irishman?
How about my sister-in-law: Kyra Barham-McCarthy? The Boss of Baltimore (or K-Love as Drew calls her).
Yeah, I know, everyone knows them.
But no one really knows me.
Or at least they didn't until everyone found out about my relationship with him, Carrick O'Sullivan, an Enforcer for my brother, and the man I have been in love with since I was a pre-teen.
And it wasn't only my relationship with Carrick that got me noticed as more than just the adopted sister of The Irishman, giving me the whispered nickname: The Untouchable, but Carrick's connection to a group even more dangerous than Clan McCarthy. A group that set its eyes on my family.
All because of me.
All because of the secrets that I know.
Not just about this dangerous group...
But about my own family
In order to protect my family and the man I love (and the unborn child I have within me), I'm going to have to expose secrets, lies, betrayals and show the world that of all the McCarthy kids it wasn't my brother Andrew, aka "The Irishman", they should fear...
It was me.
*Author/Trigger Warning: THIS IS A DARK ROMANCE, PROBABLY DARKER THAN THE TWO PREVIOUS BOOKS IN THIS SERIES. Nia and Carrick are two broken souls who spill blood, secrets, and set things on fire as a way of exorcising their demons. This is reality for some people so the author wants to warn you about what is inside before you risk your mental health for entertainment. This book contains scenes of violence, mentions of sexual abuse, child abuse, drug use, and human trafficking. Read at your own risk. You have been warned.*
I saw her first.
Freshman year of high school.
With her Mary Jane shoes. Plaid skirt. White button down. And our Catholic school's maroon sweater buttoned up halfway.
She was gorgeous.
And I set out to make her mine.
In every way possible.
We were together for years until I left for the Army.
Always with the understanding that I would come back for her.
She was mine. I was never going to let her go.
But a 4 year enlistment became 8 years and when I finally returned to the States, Heaven was engaged.
To another man.
My best friend.
Or former best friend.
I would let the two of them plan their wedding in blissful ignorance that I was a man who played for keeps. I didn't care about the diamond on Heaven's finger. Or the house they shared.
Or the seven year old daughter who looked remarkably like me but who called him "Daddy."
All I cared about was one thing.
Heaven was mine.

Stalking an ex didn’t make you crazy did it? I don’t think so. I see stalking as merely keeping an eye on an investment. I invested a lot of time and emotion into Erich and just because he didn’t think we were right for each other it didn’t mean that I was going to let him go. So what if I call and text his number repeatedly? Or stop by his house and watch to see if there are any women coming or leaving? If you’d had sex with him you would understand. I was perfectly sane until I met him, and now? Now I’m crazy.
Stalking an ex didn’t make you crazy did it? I don’t think so. I know that Keysha thinks I’m unaware of her calling, texting, or staking out my place at all times of the day and night, but I know she’s there. How? Because I’m stalking her right back. When she’s not at mine, I’m at hers. When she’s not calling or texting me? I’m calling and texting her. You wouldn’t understand our relationship unless you were in it. I was perfectly sane until I met her. Until she got me addicted to making love to her, and now? Now I’m crazy.
So if we’re both crazy for each other.
If we both crave each other.
If we both still love each other.
If we both still want to be together…
Can you really call it stalking?
Us? We just call it perfect.

Meet Valerie Hall-Smythe: Prince Algerone's secret. She is the love of his life, and fourteen years ago, the two of them got married after having one blissful summer together. And while Valerie knew Algerone was a prince when he left her at the end of the summer. He assured her he would return and she believed him.
And he did.

And brings Algerone to her side to care for her.

Prince Alastair Smythe has known his entire life that he was meant to serve at his father, the King’s side as his assistant and advisor. To that end, he maintains a very respectable public image, all the while having a very naughty and bad boy reputation to those bold enough to speak of his illicit liasons. When his eldest brother, Algerone finally introduces the family to the wife and children he’d kept hidden for fourteen years, Alastair knew it was his job to make sure that his new sister-in-law and nieces and nephews all acclimated to the Kingdom of Malvidence easily and smoothly. No hiccups. No problems. No drama.
But that was not to be.
In the midst of danger and problems from all sides, Alastair has been tasked with hiring the royal nanny, a responsibility he dreads with every fibre of his being.
Until he saw her walking up the palace drive. Now, the bad boy prince, and self-declared lifelong bachelor, finds himself lusting, obsessing, and yearning for the new nanny, Leyah, determined to make her his in every way possible, and to watch her belly swell with his child.
However, Leyah has a secret.
Generations ago, her ancestors ruled the land upon which Malvidence now stands. With each new birth, the king and queen has tasked their children with reclaiming the former country of Waldakan. By any means necessary. And after losing her parents as a child, Leyah has finally found a way into the country of her sworn enemies.
She has planned everything down to the tiniest detail, prepared for every contingency, and marked every escape route. She is prepared for everything.
Everything except Prince Alastair and his determination to take her virginity, make her his consort, and get her with child.
Now Leyah and Alastair must decide what is more important: the honour of their respective kingdoms, or their love that refuses to be denied.
